Can anyone tell me if this is an original peerless front isolator fan? Thank you in advance. Shawn

I don't know if the 6 wing blade is original or not and I have only owned this original 4 wing blade Colonial front oscillator which is virtually identical to the Peerless fan of the period.   There are, I think, the first year of the cone base front oscillator models.   Hopefully someone more familiar with these models can add some more information.   I find mine to be a super smooth runner and oscillator and one of the nicest running fans I have.   It's earlier enough to not any any pot metal parts.

The six wing is correct. Mine has a brass six wing blade with a steel cage. The wings have an extra โ€œkickโ€ to them the closer to the hub you get. Youโ€™re fortunate to have the badge still attached. Very nice fan. ๐Ÿ‘

My four wing does not have extra bends in the blade you mention Steve and I don't think that I see it on Shawn's blade either.   

Russ Huber, can you fill us in some on when the cone base front oscillating Peerless and Colonial came out and when the change to the gearbox occurred allowing the oscillation to be turned off from the top of the gearbox.  Also wen the change happened to the cage badge which was initially attached by a thumbnut on the back of the cage?

Hey Steve, here is my Peerless collection. The 12โ€ four wing doesnโ€™t have the extra bends. The six wing and 16โ€ both have them. The four wing is stationary and the other two are front oscillators.

I have never bought or sold one and don't watch ebay now so don't know the value of your fan.  It looks to have been repainted or restored with pin striping added.   How well does it run and oscillate?

Shawn, $500 is probably a premium price for your Peerless, but someone did what appears to be an excellent job on the pinstripes, and I like the color.  Probably repainted motor/base, looks like a good job also.  They added a plug for the opening behind the rear bearing, and that gives a more finished look that Peerless should have done back in the day (again, an opinion).  This model Peerless would probably go for $300 to $350 on eBay if it was stone stock with good original paint (more opinion).  So if you were looking for a nice display piece, you didn't get hurt much if at all.  I think I've seen this fan before, maybe on eBay, but I can't remember for sure.

Thanks for the info. We bought 3 fans from the same collector to get started again. If you saw my listing on eBay a year or so ago. We bought all three of those fans for 1700.  Iโ€™ll put some pictures up of all three of them

Great info Russ. So pre 16 has smooth blades. The smooth one I have is also a centrifugal start motor.
